... teenagers and does anyone have experiences or success with a teenager on this medication. My niece has anxiety and worries about everything. Thanks in advance
Its ok for her. She may get dizzy at first. He's starting her out low to get used to which is good. I've seen it work really well, and I've seen it not work at all. Everyone has to try it and find out for themselves. Expecting a result can at times cause you to have that result. The mind is powerful.
I think it is worth a good try. If the pharmacist didn't explain, she must always take it with food or always take it without food, but never alternate between the two. This will also help with some side effects she may experience. I wish when I was a teenager they had these treatments. She may, also, benefit from talk therapy. It is possible to overcome anxiety and important to treat as prescribed.
Yes I really like Kaismamma answer and this is one of the safer medications for a teen, I know we used a lot of it when i was still working and it is a non narcotic but for many works great.Hope this helps her it is very hard to have the anxiety for anyone and more so when your a teen trying to fit in.Just make sure she takes it just as the bottle says.
She should have very little problems with this med. This drug must always be taken either with food or not, don't switch it back and forth, I don't think anything bad will happen, other than it will not be effective and will cause upset.
